What follows here are profiles of five Collier County residents who passed away during 2016. Each gave generously of themselves during their lives and left behind a legacy that will continue to enrich. We love numbers. Theyre as neat and clean as new knives cutting edge, often inarguable. If the numbers tell the story, the story must be true, correct? Not according to some, especially not statistics. There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics, said Mark Twain, attributing the comment to 19th century British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. No doubt he was right, especially when the numbers are used to draw conclusions that may not be warranted. The statistics on sanity are that three out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness, pointed out Rita Mae-Brown, who then drew this conclusion: Think of your three best friends. If theyre OK, then its you.

Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | matterbrothersfurniture.com Coastal SOPHISTICATION roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYThe steady AmericanWhen the Greek philosopher Plato suggested the state is the soul writ large, he established a template for understanding who we are. Any of us, in any time or place. What we want, what we do, how we think, how we treat others, what we expect of them and of ourselves our national character, more or less is defined in each individual who must answer those questions in the music of a particular or parochial American life. Such was true of Elizabeth Kay McCullers, born to farmers April 15, 1939, in south Lee County. She spent her life there, tying it off with a knot of love 77 years later, near midnight on Dec. 14. When Kay drew her last breath, her fingers, hands, heart and soul were woven into those of her husbands and childrens, I learned from her son, Dr. J.F. McCullers. Shed been married to her husband, John, for 57 years. An American, a Southerner, a Floridian, an Estero farm girl and community stalwart, Mrs. McCullers championed public schools and 4H and her church and voracious reading for herself and her sons, Jeff and Andy. She believed in solid knowing how to grow carrots and why zoning meetings were important and how to sew a dress. Such a woman was not merely the model of a region. Instead, she was the soul of a nation at its best, something worth recalling on the cusp of 2017. There were and still are others like her, of course, some with different accents and distinct music. But their numbers shrink. On the Estero farm where Hugh and Delia Smith raised Kay, there was always an immense vegetable garden, Jeff told me. And, as was the case with nearly everyone else in Estero in the first half of the 20th century, the backyard of the house she grew up in was filled with tropical fruits of all kinds: guavas, red guavas, mangoes, lychees, key limes, Surinam cherries, avocados, kumquats, carambolas, tamarind, papayas, jaboticabas, chayote, pineapple, lemons, bignay, muscadine grapes, pomelos, bananas, and coconuts. In her case, these and other fruits also filled the side yards and the front yard. Of course, all of this was surrounded by acres and acres of oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit. All of it was also shared with the farmers and fishing families around her, who in turn shared what they had avocadoes, okra, venison, shrimp, snook, smoked mullet or guava jelly, to name a few. It left her, her son notes, with a strong sense of duty to other people, and a genuine respect for people who work for a living. The result of such forging nationwide: an abundance of men and women at once proud, tolerant, energetic, good-willed, kind, curious, humorous and resilient. A people committed to doing something better than it used to be done and as well as they could possibly do it. I think of that model as the steady American. They were not extreme in their political views or personal behaviors. They were colorful characters or not it didnt matter. They were generally modest and they accepted their time and place with its inherent attitudes and histories uncomplainingly, then got to work on it and on themselves. They made it better if they could and set it aside if they couldnt. Their politics, too, could vary within a liberal to conservative range that always weighed other opinions. As Jeff puts it about his mother, in particular, she was neither a liberal nor a conservative, so far as I could ever tell. She believed that people in need should be helped, that people who took advantage of other people should be stopped, and everyone else should do their best. When I knew her, she was a 98-pound stick of big-hearted dynamite who had and could drive a tractor; get in to the Exhibition Hall in Fort Myers to see Elvis with her lifelong friend, Phoebe Millership Freeland; host a stranger for supper as if hed been born into the family and had to be convinced of the fact before the evening ended; ride a motorcycle into old age behind her equally remarkable husband, John; and think as crisply and clearly as anybody who ever came down the American road. She suffered physically in her last years and said little about it to outsiders. All of which leaves me with this thought: If the state is the soul of Kay McCullers and her family writ large, were going to be OK. May it be so may we make it so by taking her example and may she rest in abiding peace. COURTESY PHOTOJohn and Elizabeth McCullers, 1959

A4 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONWater remains foremost environmental issue facing Southwest Floridians BY ROB MOHERLeonardo da Vinci famously said, Water is the driving force of all nature. Water was certainly a driving force of environmental and economic discussions in 2016, and by all accounts will continue to take center stage in 2017. At the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, we are looking forward to 2017 as a year in which water remains at the forefront of public concern, debate and legislative action. For many months during 2016, South Florida was in a state of emergency due to unseasonably heavy rainfall during the dry season, a woefully inadequate water management system and weak regulatory efforts to protect wetlands, manage growth and protect water quality. Like never before, 2016 debunked the false dichotomy of jobs versus conservation, or economy versus the environment. In Southwest Florida they are one and the same. Consider the following: A new report issued by the 1000 Friends of Florida, the University of Florida and the Department of Agriculture shows alarming and unsustainable trends for water availability for Florida by the year 2070. And this report did not even factor in the possible use of millions of gallons of our fresh drinking water for industrial processes like fracking and other forms of enhanced well stimulation techniques. Lee County was under a state of emergency for months due to the discharges of polluted water down the Caloosahatchee, resulting in blue-green algae blooms, devastating impacts on the estuarys ecosystem and negative economic consequences for those who make a living based on the health of our estuaries and coastal beaches. A study produced by the Florida Association of Realtors in 2015 directly linked the relationship of poor water quality to deteriorating home values. In fact, it was estimated that poor water quality in the Caloosahatchee River could be directly linked to a decrease in property value in Lee County by over half a billion dollars in the 2010-2013 timeframe. The failure of our state leaders to adequately protect our most vital economic resource in the face of a rapidly growing population and clear and longstanding evidence of the problem should not immobilize us. In fact, due to the obvious economic and environmental impacts from these problems, we have stronger grassroots pressure from a wider swath of Floridians than ever before to advance solutions that fix the systemic problems we face. Incoming Senate President Joe Negrons efforts to acquire 60,000 acres of lands south of Lake Okeechobee for water storage, treatment and conveyance are one example of positive movement to address a critical need. It is a vital missing piece of the restoration puzzle and was validated recently by the independent and nonpartisan National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine committee in its bi-annual evaluation of Everglades restoration efforts which stressed the need for additional water storage. We also note the progress to authorize ongoing Everglades restoration efforts more than 60 projects and initiatives in total that are vital to restoring the River of Grass, including the Central Everglades Planning Project, a $1.9 billion component of the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. We will need our federal elected officials to continue their outstanding efforts to secure this funding now through the next critical phase of appropriations. Equally important are efforts underway in the state senate and house to address fracking and fracking-like techniques. Our little secretIf you are an aficionado of country ham, you surely know a story or two. These are tales of tragedy and comedy, chronicling adventures, high and low. Theres the one about the couple who received a large package via Federal Express from a beloved uncle. They excitedly open it and discover a whole ham. It is covered in black mold, a gamey perfume of smoke and oak rising to meet their noses. Too bad, they think. Its spoiled. They bury it in the backyard (an urban-country legend), or they swaddle the wrapper to contain the ruin and take it to the garbage can. In it goes with a thud. They congratulate themselves. They have narr owly avoided poisoning their entire family. Uncle Fudd is not told the fate of his gift. They just tell him they prefer city ham. On hearing this, Uncle Fudd shakes his head in wonderment but says nothing. The season passes. Uncle Fudd neither forgives nor forgets. His once-intended beneficiaries are stricken from his estate plan. Never again does the errant couple receive a country ham or anything else. Thus, hope ends for the uninitiated of any communion with pork nirvana. But for the silliness and ignorance of man, what instead might have been. I, myself, have been tested. When my ham connection was lost, I suffered the five stages of grief denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. There can be no genuine country ham without a coveted source. Let me explain. First, I am not talking about just any ole ham, and especially not the ham appearing on the table as an inflated chunk of honey-baked candy. I am talking about the quintessential, salt-cured, two-yearold country ham that has gone through the summer sweats, nursed toward its prime by a sage farmer who knew his way around a smoke house and the difference between a prime hog and a porky pig. And sorry, Virginia and North Carolina, Kentucky wins this contest hands down. This road to culinary glory begins with a fundamental task: you must first acquire the ham. It sounds simple but herein lies the difficulty. The ham is the holy grail of pig parts. It starts out as mere pork. It is transformed into a culinary masterpiece by an old-fashioned method of curing over at least two years. The task requires an artisan incarnated as a farmer. There are only as many properly cured country hams as there are artisan farmers, and believe me, among those who claim to be, few are. You must eat a lot of bad ham to know the difference. Finding the source of such a ham requires a crusade of obeisance to ham elders. You must prove your worthiness. A spiritual guide serves you a sliver of the sacred delicacy to educate your palate. The taste is instantly acquired. You grovel to be blessed with a few slices to take home. Your enlightenment deepens, always at the generosity of your spiritual guide. This goes on for several years, maybe even decades. Finally, the elders give you their blessing. You are initiated into the order of the ham. Your name is added to the coveted ham distribution list, but only after the Grim Reaper winnows a name or two so yours eventually pops up. I remember the day when my husband and I proudly brought home our first country ham. That blessed day took a tragic turn, almost imperiling forever the likelihood of any more country hams in our future. We lived in the Bluegrass in an old creaking mansion straight out of Gone with the Wind. Every room was heated differently. You closed off rooms you did not heat. A frigid but not frozen room is the perfect place to store the overflow from a burgeoning holiday larder, especially a 25-pound country ham or so we thought. That long winters night, my husband and I were buried in bed under a stack of quilts. Our two canines were camped nearby. In the wee hours, we heard them quietly padding into the bathroom, lapping thirstily from their alternate watering hole, the john. We stirred, taking note, but reasoned the dog bowl must be dry. But their multiple trips troubled our sleep. They seemed unable to quench an insatiable thirst. Then it hit us. We bolted up right out of a dead sleep, looked at one another in horror and yelled simultaneously, The ham! Running downstairs, we sadly discovered a cracked door and the carcass the brutes had failed to finish. The saltiness of their purloined treat betrayed them before they got their fill. Tearfully, we salvaged a small plate of the delicacy, the ruin of pork paradise nearly complete. We swore to carry the secret to our graves. Otherwise, Uncle Fudd would surely cut us off. Nor did our holiday guests ever learn why such stingy portions were served that year. Sadly, despite our silence, our ham connection finally met demise through other means. Our little secret is no more. leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com MOHER PublisherShelley Hobbsshobbs@floridaweekly.comEditorCindy Piercecpierce@floridaweekly.comReporters & ColumnistsEric Bretan, Karen Feldman Jerry Greenfield, Bob Harden Dan Hudak, Myles Kornblatt Lindsey Nesmith, Drew Sterwald Nancy Stetson, Evan Williams Roger WilliamsPhotographersPeggy Farren, Tim Gibbons Bernadette La Paglia Vandy Major, Charlie McDonald Bob Raymond, Ivan Seligman Stephen WrightCopy EditorCathy CottrillPresentation EditorEric Raddatzeraddatz@floridaweekly.comGraphic DesignersChris Andruskiewicz Hannah Arnone Alisa Bowman Amy Grau Paul Heinrich Meg Roloff Scott Sleeper Circulation ManagerMaggie Humphreymaggie@floridaweekly.comCirculationDavid Anderson Paul Neumann Greg TretwoldAccount ExecutivesNicole Ryannryan@floridaweekly.comCori Higginschiggins@floridaweekly.comAdam Schonberg email@example.comDrew McAuleyandrew.firstname.lastname@example.orgSales and Marketing AssistantKatie BabkaBusiness Office ManagerKelli CaricoPublished by Florida Media Group LLCPason Gaddis email@example.com Jeffrey Cull firstname.lastname@example.org Jim Dickerson email@example.com Naples Florida Weekly 9051 Tamiami Trail North, Suite 202 Naples, Florida 34108 Phone 239.325.1960 Fax: 239.325.1964 Subscriptions:Copyright: The contents of the Florida Weekly are copyright 2016 by Florida Media Group, LLC.

Sure, dogs profess their undying love to their owners every time they lay eyes on them, but I think its cats that really are, well, the cats pajamas. Theyre self-cleaning, selfsufficient and naturally more socially acceptable than dogs. Not only do they not require extensive potty training, they dose out a dignified level of love that allows for snuggling but thats never incessant attention-seeking. Im convinced that the crazy cat lady trope is simply a marketing ploy perpetrated by dog lovers to gain an upper hand in the feline-versus-canine cultural wars. For instance, science suggests that cat lovers score higher on intelligence tests. While we tend to be more neurotic, were also more independent and less dominant toward our peers. Dog lovers have plenty of traits to recommend them, like extroversion, but I think cat people have enough positive personality traits to reject the crazy stereotype and tell them to stop their yapping. If you agree with me, or if you just love to cuddle up with a kitty, Naples Cat Alliance has a job for you. The allvolunteer-run nonprofit seeks devoted cat people to help handle an influx of admissions. The alliances more than 100 cats some of which have been severely injured by humans or are permanently disabled not only need permanent homes, they need TLC during whatever time they spend in the no-kill shelter. Here are just a few of the felines that are in residence now: Bonnet: A sweet calico who was so neglected mites destroyed her ears. Roger: A beautiful, gentle, blue-eyed boy who is recovering from a shot to the spine. With help, hes learned to walk again and has even been spotted running. Coconut: This snowball was born with a neurological disorder that causes her to permanently tilt her head and have difficulty walking. However, her siblings Pistachio and Praline watch her back and the three, after becoming Youtube sensations, are quite the team at the shelter. Of course, there are plenty of healthy, happy cats and kittens to care for, too. Many felines in all states of health and well being enter the shelter and are adopted out to loving owners. Taking care of them at the shelter, however, requires many volunteer hands and more are always welcome. The shelter has no paid staff, so likeminded community members who can commit to working from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. one day per week would be appreciated. From cleaning to cuddling, extra hands will be put to good use. If you cant commit your time, money helps, too, because the organization receives no government funding. The shelter always has a running tab at Harborside Animal Clinic, and it also has a wish list on Amazon.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYThomas Gattle: A lifetime of fine linensNov. 22, 1924Oct. 23, 2016Thomas Gattle was possessed of a rare expertise in a subject that was both his vocation and an avocation: fine linens. Whether through osmosis or it being hard-wired into his DNA as the third generation of his family to trade in the highly valued material, the Naples resident knew the topic inside out. He loved linens, his widow, Connie Gattle, said. What he prided himself on is he probably knew more about fine linens than anyone I know. Even people in the market (linen trade shows) would say he was the king. But he never acted like that. He was very modest, an unassuming person. And he had a wonderful smile. Truly, everybody loved him. Mr. Gattle, the owner of high-end linen purveyor Gattles on Third Street South, died in October at 91, after 51 years of business in downtown Naples. He grew up in the business, which was started in Cincinnati in 1904 by his German-immigrant grandmother, Henrietta Gattle. Gattles Inc. continued to flourish under his father, Otto, expanding further into the Midwest. That success was sustained by Mr. Gattle, under whose leadership the business grew to, at one point, 12 locations in Florida, Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. After completing a business degree at Indiana University, he joined the family business at age 24, launching a career that he found endlessly satisfying. I think he just loved business, said Mrs. Gattle, his wife of 35 years. He loved working with customers and he particularly loved linens. When away from work, he enjoyed playing tennis and running for many years. He would always enter 5K and 10K races, said Mrs. Gattle. He never won any of them, but he loved the exercise and he loved the feeling of it. The couple met 41 years ago in Palm Beach, when they both lived in that area, she a widow and he a divorcee. They began dating after being set up by matchmaking mutual friends. I just fell in love with him, she said. He was a wonderful person. He was very, very kind, always, and very, very thoughtful, always considerate of other people. He was just a very, very charming person. The couple moved to Naples in 2010, after selling off five of the remaining six stores, all in Florida, which left only the Third Street South boutique. Naples has always been very good to us in business and in friends, said Mrs. Gattle. Its a place that we have always loved. Cindy Getzberg, the assistant manager and buyer at Gattles on Third Street South, where she has worked for 20 years, described Mr. Gattle as a true gentleman and a very intelligent, kind person to work for. He was truly renowned in this industry, which is a very small industry, upper-end linens, Ms. Gertzberg added. When I went to market, everybody wanted to know how he was. He was just a great person, he really was, and hell be solely missed. Gattles on Third Street South will remain a family business, carried on by Mr. Gattles four children. He also had 14 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. The children very much love this business, Mrs. Gattle said. They will never allow it to discontinue. Homer Helter: A dedicated friend and patriotAug. 2, 1944Oct. 2, 2016Diana Helter paraphrased revered 20th century humorist Will Rogers when describing her late husbands personality. Like Mr. Rogers, she said, Homer Helter never met someone he didnt like. That love for his fellow man is something she saw him manifest routinely from the time they began dating during high school in Dennison, Ohio. Its something that was also on display at his business, Homer Helters Antique and Military Mall off Pine Ridge Road, which doubles as a popular gathering spot for military veterans. Those daily gatherings have been missing a key participant since Mr. Helter, 72, passed away suddenly on Oct. 2. He was a very dedicated friend and patriot, said Mrs. Helter. He was that way all of his life. From the minute I met him, he was always doing something for somebody. Mr. Helter wasnt a veteran himself after having gotten hitched not long after high school at a time when the military wasnt accepting married men. But military memorabilia had been a keen interest since childhood. His father and other family members served in the armed forces, and a cousin died in combat. He always had a high respect for their sacrifices and the things they went through, said his wife of 53 years. Sometimes it was the ultimate sacrifice like his cousin, but it was also the being away from home and in harms way. He just always had a passion for those people. After Mr. Helter retired in 1989 as a vice-president for Fishers Big Wheel in New Castle, Penn., the family moved to Naples. Mrs. Helter hoped hed indulge in rest and relaxation after a stressful career, but boredom eventually overtook a man who didnt enjoy golf or fishing. The 1998 opening of Homer Helters Antique and Military Mall was the result. The antiques and collectables store gave him a chance to show off his extensive military memorabilia collection. He enjoyed talking to people there and the business kept growing, said Mrs. Helter. He just loved it. He loved the people, he loved the vets. It was an absolute passion, and thats why were going to keep the store going. It was his passion. Its what he loved and it makes me feel good that its going to continue. Mr. Helter also loved the daily confabs with the veterans who gather there to chew the fat, pass the time and enjoy the camaraderie around the Table, as their traditional gathering spot is known. They still come in daily, said Mrs. Helter of the gathering of friends. We still put coffee on the table every day. We still put pastries out every day. That was a tradition of Homers and were continuing that tradition. Since 2003, Mr. Helter, along with a group of volunteers, had shipped almost 75 tons of supplies to service members stationed overseas. He also provided wheelchairs and electric scooters to needy veterans. If we had it, we would give it to that person, said Mrs. Helter. If they didnt have a vehicle, we would make sure it got to them. He volunteered for the Southwest Florida branch of the Honor Flight network, aiding the nonprofit program that transports veterans to Washington, D.C., to visit the countrys war memorials. Mr. Helters presence was also felt at the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of Southwest Florida, where he was a member of the board of directors. He also donated a portion of his military memorabilia collection pertaining to WWII and the concentration camps for permanent display. He just had a passion for that history, the persecution that the Jews had to go through and all the rest who had to go through the Nazi regime, said Mrs. Helter. He had a collection that he thought should be held somewhere. The museums executive director, Amy Snyder, knew Mr. Helter for more than 13 years. Homer will always be recognized as one of the people who made it possible for this museum to exist, she said. His initial artifact donations have paved the way for so many of our local holocaust survivors and WWII veterans to donate their items, allowing us to tell a very personal story of the holocaust. Kathryn Leib-Hunter: Uplift, educate and provide hope Feb. 5, 1962March 9, 2016The name Kathryn Leib-Hunter has become synonymous with the fight to de-stigmatize mental illness and to provide vital services for those afflicted with the disease and their families, both locally and statewide. Mrs. Hunter, CEO of the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Collier County, died in March at age 54 after a long illness and decades of advocacy for the mentally ill and other vulnerable populations. Hers is a legacy that includes helping to found the countys Guardian ad Litem program more than 20 years ago. The program trains adults to be advocates for children involved with the court system. In 1993, Mrs. Hunter threw herself into building NAMI Collier County into a robust organization that offers a wide range of mental health programming. She was purely an advocate, said NAMIs new CEO, Pamela Baker, whod known Mrs. Hunter since 2001. Her very extraordinary focus was on making life better for people with mental illness. Her job at NAMI wasnt just a job. It was her life. Ms. Baker said that when they met, she was impressed by something she believes was unique: the state of Floridas provision of mental health funding to NAMI Collier County rather than a large community mental health center. That was specifically to bring in more recovery-oriented services, things that helped to improve the quality of life rather than just treatment services, she said. In fact, very quickly we became one of the largest NAMIs in the nation. Mental illness was something that was deeply personal topic for Mrs. Hunter. Neapolitan Deena Baxter is the author of a 2014 book detailing the death of her adult son who was bipolar. Surviving Suicide: Searching for Normal with Heartache & Humor was inspired by a conversation Mrs. Baxter had with Mrs. Hunter three weeks after the young man took his life. The book serves as a fundraiser for The Surviving Suicide Project, a partnership between Mrs. Baxter and NAMI of Collier County that also includes a creative arts website, www.writeonmymind.com, and outreach presentations throughout Southwest Florida and beyond by Baxter. She was totally committed to improving mental health and de-stigmatizing mental illness, said Mrs. Baxter. She attached no stigma whatsoever to mental illness. She experienced it first-hand in her own family and used that as a catalyst for her lifes purpose.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 NEWS A9She was totally steeped in family, faith and her job. There was nothing 9-to-5 about it. She was so warm and had an incredible sense of humor. Mrs. Hunter was also devoted to her husband, Patrick, and her college-student sons, twins Forrest and Taylor, said Mrs. Baxter. I miss her every day, she added. When I go out and speak, I have a slide that honors her. Wherever shes floating in eternity, I know its a good place because she was such good people. Mrs. Hunters commitment to the cause was reflected in NAMIs hiring practices, with almost half the staff comprised of people who have a mental illness. These are people who are far enough into their recovery that they are ready to go back to work, whether its just a few hours a week, if thats all they want, to full time employment, said Ms. Baker. Mrs. Hunters stewardship included the creation of NAMIs Crisis Intervention Team Training program that instructs law enforcement officials in identifying and de-escalating encounters with people experiencing a mental health crisis. More than 1,000 officers have been trained since the program began in 2008. Its a national model, Mrs. Baker said. It helps to ensure that peoples rights are not violated and that they get treatment rather than just end up in jail, she added. Kathryn fought to bring that here. Mike McDonnell: Family, the law and musicSept. 24, 1940Feb. 4, 2016Mike McDonnell was that fortunate person who doesnt just discover one pursuit he loves, but two. For him, it was the practice of law and making music with voice and guitar, endeavors he approached with great passion and rare skill. The Naples resident, West Point graduate, decorated Vietnam veteran, professional musician, renowned trial attorney and mentor for young attorneys passed away suddenly in February at age 75. Mr. McDonnell practiced law for 46 years, building a respected law firm and acquiring a stellar reputation in Collier County and statewide for his case preparation and courtroom skills. Over the years, he represented a number of high-profile clients, including actressinventor Hedy Lamarr and ex-major league pitcher Gaylord Perry, a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He was one of the finest trial lawyers in the state, if not the country, said his wife of 36 years, Nina. There was no case that he didnt want to learn from and master. He wanted to make sure every defendant had the defense that was called for The motto when he graduated (West Point) was 2 Can Do, and thats the kind of person he was. His ethics, his morals and his values are unattainable for most people. He was just amazing in that way. Mr. McDonnell was an equally accomplished musician whose taste spanned multiple genres. He was known around town for his ability to entertain friends at small gatherings as well as crowds at public events. He was just in his element when he was on stage and when he was in court, said Mrs. McDonnell. He toured for two years in the early 1980s with his group named Mike McDonnell and the Good Time Boogie Band. And for two years in the early 2000s, he was part of a Kingston Trio tribute band with Paul Shane of Tampa and Banks Burgess of Georgia, called Banks and Shane with Mike McDonnell.Mr. McDonnell, Dr. Da vid Per lmutter of Naples and the late Cancer Alliance of Naples co-founder Jerry Conti were known for performing The Star Spangled Banner at local sporting events. Dr. Perlmutter and Mr. Conti were also among the many area musicians who would attend the music party jam sessions the McDonnells would hold at their home. What I miss the most around the house is him playing his music, said Mrs. McDonnell. Music was a big part of our lives. However, Mr. McDonnells love of performing was outweighed by his passion for and dedication to the law and his work as a defense attorney. He was such a gentleman, said Mrs. McDonnell. He was extremely charming, but in a very real way. And he was always for the underdog. He always wanted to take the underdogs case. He loved telling jokes and loved his own material. Born in New Jersey and raised in Michigan and Florida, Mr. McDonnell graduated from Culver Military Academy, before moving on to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, where he was a member of the class of 1962. He served two tours in Vietnam during the war there, attaining the rank of captain. He served in the Army Rangers and commanded an infantry company while in-country. After returning stateside, he attended Stetson Universitys law school, receiving his degree in 1970 and moving to Naples to establish his firm. Mr. McDonnell used his legal skills to assist those who may be economically challenged. He would see military veterans for free or, if need be, refer them to another attorney who would do as much for free as they could, said his wife. That was near and dear to him. He also donated significant time to Legal Aid Service of Collier County. One of the proudest honors he earned was being named Pro-Bono Attorney of the Year by Legal Aid, Mrs. McDonnell said. Mr. McDonnells greatest source of pride was his family, which included five children and seven grandchildren. He was a really great dad, his widow said. He was very present in doing things like coaching their sports teams. He was very involved in helping them learn. He was at every sporting event, even if he wasnt coaching He loved his family with a passion. Dick Shanahan: A tireless community servantMarch 11, 1927Oct. 20, 2016 Dick Shanahans overarching philosophy was to live life to the fullest and enjoy every day that you can, according to his widow, Debra. He was always in a good mood, she said. If he walked into a room and people asked him how he was, hed say, fantastic, in that deep, booming voice of his. He was fun to be with. He had a level head on his shoulders. He looked at situations from both sides and hed figure out the best way. He was just a lot of fun and a very loving and giving person. The longtime Marco Island civic leader died on Oct. 20 at age 89 from cancer, a disease that he and Mrs. Shanahan devoted much time to fighting. They were slated to chair the Marco American Cancer Societys Imagination Ball in 2017, the Shanahans fifth consecutive year in that role. Marco and Collier County were much more for Mr. Shanahan than places where he simply resided after retiring. He also tirelessly used his time and talents to benefit the community and to help those in need. The Chicago native moved to the island in 1987 after more than 30 years with Chicago-based auto parts manufacturer Maremont Corp., where he retired a marketing executive. Although he left the work-a-day world, he wasnt interested in replacing it with a life of leisure. When he retired, he wanted to get involved again, Mrs. Shanahan said. Thats what kept him young at heart. He mounted a successful campaign for Collier County commissioner in 1988, defeating a three-term incumbent in the process. During his four years on the board, the political newcomer also served as chairman of the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council and the Metropolitan Planning Organization. Mr. Shanahans involvement on Marco was wide-ranging, encompassing city government, civic organizations and numerous charities. From 2010 to 2012, he was a member of the citys planning board, holding the chairmans post in 2012. He was also a member of Marcos Sunrise Rotary Club, the Greater Marco Family YMCA, the Marco Island Chamber of Commerce, the Marco Island Police Foundation, the Knights of Columbus and the United Way, among other organizations, serving on the boards of directors for many of them over the years. He also didnt totally leave working behind, getting his real estate license in 1993 and most recently working as an agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Florida Realtys Marco office. In fact, Mr. Shanahan was the 2016 president for the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors, the fourth time hed held that post. The Naples Daily News recognized Mr. Shanahans community involvement in 2001 by naming him its Citizen of the Year. The Marco Realtors association selected him as Realtor of the Year in 1999 and 2009, and he was the Sunrise Rotarys Rotarian of the Year in 2000. In 2008, the Marco Chamber of Commerce presented him with its Lifetime Achievement Award. He cared about this island and this city, and he did anything he could do to make it better for the people who live here, said Mrs. Shanahan. If people asked him to do something, he never said no. And if he couldnt solve a problem, he would find someone who could. Mr. Shanahan was also a dedicated family man, with five daughters, 13 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren and a ninth on the way. He loved his family as much as he loved life and his community, said Mrs. Shanahan. The couple married in 2011, after the death of Mr. Shanahans first wife, Catherine. Theyd initially met several years earlier while both were members of the Marco Island Police Foundation. Mrs. Shanahan credited him with being a masterful facilitator. If two people were disagreeing about something, he would be the third party involved and he would try to get them to see each others side, she said. When that meeting was over, they would walk out with smiles. Thats part of what I loved about him. He was stoic upon learning in May that he had an aggressive form of cancer and time was likely short. It was very quick, and he was without pain up until the very end. Im thankful for that and for the years we had together, Mrs. Shanahan said. Before we got married, he said Ill be a happy man if I have five good years with you. I said, Shanahan, arent you going to negotiate for 10? He died the day before our fifth anniversary. MIKE MCDONNELL Sept. 24, 1940 Feb. 4, 2016 Dick and Debra Shanahan Mike McDonnell, center, in his Kingston Trio tribute band with Banks Burgess and Paul Shane.

We bet there are even plenty of readers who didnt have seatbelts back there. But that doesnt work anymore. After the first few years in a full car seat, its recommended that todays children be given a booster chair until around middle school age. Its also recommended that they dont ride up front where theres direct contact with the airbag. Thus, kids today take up a lot of rear-seat real estate. In fact, families that have two children under the age of 10 can fill the backbench of a large sedan with two safety seats, leaving it difficult to utilize the middle. So families with three or more kids, or those who have a need to carry more than just their own brood, are flocking to three-row vehicles. Minivans and large crossovers/SUVs are the easy answer to this new problem, but not all of us want one. Grandparents only need to transport the whole family when they visit a few weeks of the year. And urban parents probably dont like parking a large SUV. This is where the latest crop of three-row midsize crossovers are becoming more useful. The category is nothing new to the market. Mitsubishi has been offering the value-priced, seven-passenger Outlander for over a decade. Chrysler saw the appeal of an efficiently packaged three-row crossover and had the Dodge Journey replace the Caravan in 2008 (the larger Grand Caravan continued until this year.) Along with the Kia Sorento, these represent the sub-$30K end of the market, and they all require some added investigation before purchasing. The Chrysler has proven to be the least durable; the Mitsubishi feels like its a generation behind; and the Kia often trades in deep discounts now, that reduce resale value in the future. None of these issues should be deal breakers, but its good to know whats given up for the allure of leaving with extra cash-in-hand. The other end of the spectrum doesnt really serve this part of the market. Premium brands like BMW, Jaguar, Lincoln, Mercedes and many more have small and midsize crossovers, but their emphasis on providing luxury usually precludes trying to squeeze three rows of seating into a cabin. This leaves the heart of the market with the mainstream brands that come in around $30,000. Its the place where usefulness meets a bit of design and features flair. And there are plenty of signs that the manufacturers see this segment getting very competitive. Vehicles like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe have all been refreshed or totally revamped within the last year. Ford and Nissan have taken the tough SUV image built with the Explorer and Pathfinder, and they are now exploiting the namesakes to make the latest generation of crossovers feel more adventurous. Volkswagen will even be entering the threerow market in 2017 with the Atlas. Its focused on being a family hauler, so it will offer more room than the Touareg, but is priced over $10K less to make it competitive with the rest of the market. The Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Flex, Mazda CX-9 and a few others also fit into this pricing. But they have the wheelbase and length to feel like fullsized vehicles on the road and in the parking lots. The few vehicles mentioned above that have not been redesigned/refreshed within the last couple of years will either do so or die in 2017. This class is seeking to offer the hippest family haulers around. But for those who dont need to be trendy, minivans offer more space for similar pricing. And because of their efficient use of space and drivetrain, many often feel smaller than driving a midsize crossover. But when it comes to the car to pick up the grandkids or the second car for a young family, the full-time versatility of a minivan isnt needed. Instead, theres a growing need for a vehicle that has a third row when needed, but folds out of sight when you dont want to look like a mommy mobile. And style is likely as much a factor as legroom, because those little feet in the third row dont even touch the ground yet. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Ford Explorer Mitsubishi Outlander Hyundai Santa Fe Mazda CX-9 Insurance Processing Early Morning Appointments!

News reports indicate that a Ban and Study bill is proposed to be filed that would permanently end the misguided attempts to use risky enhanced well stimulation techniques in Florida. These practices pose adverse impacts and risks to surface and ground waters. Florida accounts for less than one-tenth of 1 percent of known national reserves, and the crude oil in our region is poor quality and would not contribute to achieving Americas energy independence. The use of these enhanced techniques involves permitting millions of gallons of our fresh drinking water supply for private benefit at the expense of a valuable public resource. This wasteful use of water makes no sense in the face of projected water shortages in Florida. Once waters have been utilized for oil well stimulation and mixed with toxic chemicals, the resource cannot be reused. Additionally, these practices pose adverse impacts and risks to our surface and ground waters, particularly given Floridas unique hydrology and geology. In 2017, we hope to work with our legislators to ban fracking and similar techniques, and to engage a scientific study to reinforce this prohibition. With voters in our region clearly understanding the need for additional efforts to protect our land, water and wildlife, we have a chance to contribute to the outcomes of the upcoming legislative session. The passage of Lee Countys conservation land acquisition and stewardship program, Conservation 20/20, with over 83 percent voter approval shows this understanding, as did the defeat of the sham solar amendment pursued this year but wisely defeated by voters at the ballot box. Lets join our voices together from fishermen, to local business owners, to concerned residents to students both inland and coastal: Water is the lifeblood of our quality of life and our economic wellbeing. We must seize the opportunity to protect it and support those leaders who are willing to champion the will of Floridians. Rob Moher is president and CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida.

Nina Nordgren, M.D. Board Eligible Ophthalmologist SWFLEYE.COM M.D. Board Ophthalmologist NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateHoles against humanityThe rebellion against the absurdities of Black Friday this year by the organization Cards Against Humanity came in the form of raising money to dig a pointless hole in the ground. During the last week of November, people contributed $100,573,000 with cards digging initially for 5.5 seconds per donated dollar. In 2015, according to an NPR report, cards raised $ 71,145 by promising to do absolutely nothing with it, and the year before, $180,000 by selling bits of bull feces. (Asked why cards doesnt just give the money to charity, a spokesperson asked why donors themselves dont give it to charity. Its (their) money.) Government in actionNew York Citys Department of Parks and Recreation has completed its two-year project of assigning ID numbers (with arboreal characteristics) to every one of the 685,781 trees in the citys five boroughs. More than 2,300 volunteers walked the streets, then posted each trees location, measurements, Google Street View image, and ecological benefits for the surrounding neighborhoods (rainwater retained, air pollution reduced). (Privacy activists hope the National Security Agency is not inspired by this.) The continuing crisis A note in The New York Times in October mentioned a website that comprehensively covers everything worth knowing and wondering about shoelaces. Ians Shoelace Site shows and discusses (and rates) lacing methods, how to mix lace colors, how to tie (comparing methods, variations and, again, ratings), lengths of laces (how to calculate, which formulas to use, what to do with excess lengths), granny knots, aglet repair and much more neatly laid out in dozens of foolproof drawings for the shoelacechallenged (because no one wants to be caught in a shoelace faux pas). Though the presidential election of 2016 was certainly more volatile than usual, one reaction to the outc ome was the apparent ease with which some in Americas next generation of collegetrained leaders were sidelined by selfdescribed emotional pain. The Wall Street Journal reported that special attention was given by administrators at Tufts University, the University of Kansas and Ivy League Cornell, among other places, where their young adults could grieve over the election and seek emotional support, such as use of therapy dogs in Kansas and, at the University of Michigan, the availability of Play-Doh and coloring books for distraction. Ironies (1) The county executive in Cleveland, Ohio, complained in November of lack of funds (because the countys credit is maxed out) for necessary renovations to its well-known sports and concert venue, the Quicken Loans Arena. (2) In November, after a companion asked Victoria Vanatter, 19, what blood sucking was like, she let him slice her arm with a razor to have a taste, but the two then argued, and Vanatter allegedly grabbed a knife and slashed him for real. Police in Springfield, Mo., arrested her after both people were stitched up at a hospital. Recurring: The most recent city to schedule a civic-minded conference with community leaders to discuss options for affordable, accessible housing in a meeting place that was highly unfriendly to the non-ambulatory was Toronto, in November. The first proposed site required a seven-step walkup, but following complaints, officials relocated it to a building whose only rest room was in the elevator-free basement.

This is the highest reading since March 2015 and the second highest since February 2004. All five of the components that make up the index increased. Perceptions of ones personal financial situation now compared with a year ago rose 1.4 points, from 81.5 to 82.9. Opinions as to whether now is a good time to buy a big-ticket item such as an appliance jumped 8.2 points, from 92.6 to 100.8, with a particularly strong increase among those 60 and older. Perceptions of present conditions have largely improved as a result of the buying conditions in the holiday shopping season in conjunction with the strength of the states economy, said Hector Sandoval, director of the Economic Analysis Program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The future also looks bright to survey participants: Expectations of personal finances a year from now rose 2.9 points to 104.4. Expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next year increased 11.6 points, from 88.1 to 99.7, and expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years increased 10.2 points, from 87.9 to 98.1. Overall, Floridians are far more optimistic this month, Mr. Sandoval said, adding the gain in Decembers sentiment reading comes mainly from consumers future expectations about the economy, independent of their demographic characteristics and socioeconomic status. These are very positive signs, which provide great conditions for the upcoming change in federal government. The Florida unemployment rate ticked up one-tenth of a point to 4.9 percent in November. As 2016 ends, the Florida labor market is in its best shape since the Great Recession with sustained job gains over the last years. Compared with last year, the number of jobs added in November statewide increased by 3.2 percent.For the second quarter of 2016, the most recent figures available, Floridas gross domestic product grew by 2.3 percent, the highest rate in the Southeast and seventh in the nation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.SEE CONSUMER, A15

Florida consumer sentiment is back to the high levels observed between 2001 and 2005, before the economy showed signs of the housing market crisis that led to the Great Recession. The year is ending with an important increase in consumer sentiment among Floridians and a positive economic outlook both nationally and at the state level. Despite the potential uncertainty due to the change of the administration next year, we expect consumer sentiment in January to remain around the average levels observed in the past two years, Mr. Sandoval said. He also observed that consumer sentiment is significantly higher compared with December 2015. One can expect holiday sales to perform better than last year, he said. Conducted Dec. 1-18, the UF study reflects the responses of 418 individuals who were reached on cell phones and who represent a demographic cross section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2, the highest is 150.Details of this months survey can be found at http://www.bebr.ufl.edu/csidata.

While researchers dont know exactly why heart attacks are more common around holidays, they note a number of possible reasons, including changes in diet and alcohol consumption during the holidays; stress from family interactions, strained finances, travel and entertaining; respiratory problems from burning wood; and not paying attention to the signs and symptoms of a heart attack. Consider the case of Julie Rickman, a 41-year-old stay-at-home mom. I felt like we were running around, going everywhere, and I just couldnt catch my breath, Ms. Rickman said. I remember, two days before Christmas, we thought I was allergic to my live Christmas tree, and we took it down and got an artificial tree. The day after Christmas, Ms. Rickman got winded while folding laundry. Even though she was pretty sure it was exhaustion, she decided to go to the emergency room anyway. That trip saved her life. Along with two blockages in her heart, doctors also discovered she had suffered a heart attack. I have no idea when the heart attack happened, she said. I was one of those women who attributed feeling bad to the holidays and thinking I was exhausted. The progression of heart disease doesnt happen overnight, so an uptick in cardiac death during the holidays is actually more the acute manifestations of the disease, Dr. Jorge Plutzky, director of preventive cardiology and cardiovascular medicine at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, Mass., and a volunteer with the AHA, explained. Factors like cold weather, stress and dietary indiscretion can contribute to a chain of events leading to more stress on the heart, Dr. Plutzky said, adding, A cardiac event might be triggered because the heart is working harder.Ms. Rickman, now an AHA Go Red For Women volunteer, has since changed her approach to the holidays and to life. She cut out processed foods and limits sugar. She also limits SEE HEART ATTACK, A21 UF study: Discrimination interacts with genetics and affects health THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAIts no secret that discrimination is stressful for those who experience it, but turns out the issue is more than skin deep these stressors can interact with our genetics to negatively impact our health, a new University of Florida study shows. Researchers developed a novel measure of unfair treatment to study the effects of discrimination on health, particularly with respect to racial disparities in complex diseases, which are illnesses resulting from both genetic and environmental factors. They used the measure to investigate hypertension, which is more prevalent in AfricanAmericans, and found that discrimination interacts with certain genetic variants to alter blood pressure. The researchers also measured vicarious unfair treatment, or experiences of discrimination by close friends and family to the study participant. They were surprised to discover that study participants were more significantly affected by unfair treatment of close family members or friends than when they experienced discrimination firsthand, said Connie Mulligan, a professor with appointments at UFs department of anthropology and the universitys Genetics Institute. Weve been missing a huge factor in explaining racial disparities in disease, said Ms. Mulligan, co-author of the new study, which is online at www. plos.org. Our finding of an interaction between genetics and environment could explain why its been so hard to identify all the risk factors for complex diseases, particularly those that have racial disparities. You have to look at genetics and environment in the same study if youre investigating complex diseases like hypertension, certain kinds of cancer and psychological disorders. In the first study of its kind, UF researchers combined anthropological analysis of in-depth, ethnographic interviews with 157 African-Americans with measurements of 30,000 genetic variants and measures of genetic ancestry. Ms. Mulligan and her colleagues identified eight significant genetic variants in five genes that were previously associated with cardiovascular disease. When they added sociocultural data, including their novel measure of vicarious unfair treatment, and tested for interactions between genetic variants and unfair treatment, they were able to identify associations with blood pressure and a new class of genes that previously had been associated with psychosocial distress and mood disorders. Study authors suggest genetic variants that predispose some people to depression, anxiety or suicide might also make them more sensitive to the effects of discrimination and lead to higher blood pressure. The role of these genes with blood pressure regulation may only become relevant when dealing with the effects of discrimination and could help explain why its been so difficult to understand racial disparities in disease, Ms. Mulligan said. As for the finding that vicarious discrimination causes greater stress, she said people may feel they have more control over things experienced personally than they have over acts of discrimination happening to people close to them. People may also be reluctant to report personal experiences of discrimination to avoid the stigma, and denial may itself be a coping mechanism, she added. Its also likely that effects of vicarious unfair treatment may be even greater, since the study did not include events that one hears through the news, such as an act of racial violence. She was inspired by the personal history of the studys lead author, Jacklyn Quinlan. A former UF postdoctoral researcher, Ms. Quinlan tackled the project after the loss of her CaribbeanAmerican husband to a heart attack. Ms. Mulligan hopes the new study will broaden the way both the academic and medical fields approach disease. Were quick to say that racial disparities in disease are due to poverty or access to good health care. Or that there might be a genetic basis, she said. Our research suggests its even more complicated.

The biggest challenge is controlling stress, she said. I dont try to do it all. I have my list, but its not an ongoing list of unrealistic expectations. Thats good advice, especially because people who have had a heart attack are at increased risk of another. Make sure the holidays dont get in the way of taking your medicines and continuing to be attentive to a healthy diet, Dr. Plutzky said. But even when the holidays are passed, these things continue to be issues all year long because heart disease remains a leading threat to Americas health, he added.

Not on your own body, but on your dogs? If you can, he could probably stand to lose some weight. Its something to think about as we enter a new year with good resolutions to improve ourselves and our pets. When we hear the word malnutrition, we think of starvation, but you might be surprised to learn that obesity is the most common form of malnutrition in dogs. Its estimated to affect nearly 53 percent of the canine population, according to a May 2014 survey by the Association for Pet Obesity Prevention. Thats a lot of extra weight! Why are so many dogs fat? Often, its because owners dont recognize the problem. And veterinarians may hesitate to speak up because its not uncommon for people who are overweight to have pets with the same problem. A 2013 study found that people who were 60 or older and overweight themselves tended to have overweight pets. Carrying too many pounds is a serious problem in pet pups. Obesity, defined as being 20 percent or more over their ideal body weight, puts dogs at higher risk of joint problems, poor mobility, reduced kidney function, poor response to anesthesia and skin and urinary tract infections. Thats not all. A long-term study found that osteoarthritis and chronic diseases in general developed approximately two years later in dogs who remained at or below their normal body weight than in dogs allowed to become overweight. The trim dogs lived an average of two years longer than the fat dogs. There are more benefits, according to Martha Cline, DVM, a veterinary nutritionist who spoke on obesity last month at a San Diego veterinary conference. Dogs who achieved even modest weight loss suffered significantly less lameness. Quality of life gains included increased vitality and reduced emotional disturbance and pain. Dogs who lost weight also had improved renal function. To tell if your dog needs to lose weight, give him a visual exam and the hands-on test. A dogs body should be shaped like an hourglass, not a sausage. As you look down at him, can you see an indentation behind his ribs before the body flares out again? Thats his waist. Then put your hands on his back, thumbs along the spine and fingers splayed out on his sides. As you gently press inward, you should be able to feel his ribs beneath a layer of skin and muscle. If the ribs are buried beneath rolls of fat, its time to talk to your veterinarian about a safe diet and exercise plan. A veterinary exam, including lab work, ensures that your dog doesnt have any underlying health problems that are causing weight gain or that could be worsened by changes in activity levels or type of food. One easy change you can make is to measure your dogs food and feed meals twice a day instead of leaving food out all the time. Even better, put a days supply of dry food inside a puzzle toy so your dog spends the day actively hunting for his meals. Instead of high-calorie treats, offer small bites of chopped carrots, green beans or apples. To add more activity, begin with brief walks. As his stamina improves, gradually increase the distance. Always stop before your dog shows signs of exhaustion, such as panting or reluctance to go further. For dogs who are currently in good shape, the best thing you can do is to make sure they dont become sedentary as they age. Keeping dogs at a healthy weight is a lot easier than trying to take pounds off. Pets of the Week>> Jordan is a handsome and friendly, 3-year-old terrier/ bully mix who loves to play.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 NEWS A23 YOUVE NEVER SETTLED FOR MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. SO WHEN PLANNING YOUR NEXT MOVE, GO WITH A CHOICE THAT PUTS YOU IN THE DRIVERS SEAT. THE BEST next thing LUXURY RETIREMENT LIVING SEE THE BEST NEXT THING TODAY.Call (239) 307-3050 for your personal tour. THE DIVA DIARIESHeres to 2016 if youre drinking to forget it, heed this adviceAt around the age of 40-ish, two things happen to all of us without fail: Time starts to fly by at an alarming rate. And your hangovers get much worse. I can hardly believe that its that time of year again time for noisemakers, funny paper hats, spirited beverages and my annual column, as a public service to my dear readers, about how to prevent (and recover from) a New Years Day hangover. Again, this is advice I impart each year and the older I get, the more wisdom I acquire on the subject. But something tells me that this year, our collective New Years Day hangover is going to be worse than in previous years, because quite frankly, 2016 has been a downright horned-beast. It all started with David Bowies untimely passing in January and hasnt let up since. There were the deaths of Prince, Alan Rickman, Florence Henderson, Leonard Cohen, Gene Wilder, Muhammad Ali, Zsa Zsa Gabor and more. When it came to taking celebrities, 2016 wasnt messing around. Then there was all the Zika virus, Brexit, record-hot temperatures, the Brad Pitt/ Angelina Jolie divorce, and for half of the country, the presidential election. Seriously, yall, its been rough so if you get hammered ringing in 2017, no one is going to judge you trust me.Part I How to Avoid a Hangover Eat BEFORE the party and Im not talking about a salad. You need to carb up like you would for a triathlon. A burger and fries, or pizza, or an enormous sub sandwich. Put something in your belly that will soak up booze like a sponge. This way, you wont get as tipsy as fast as you would on an empty stomach. Make a deal with yourself that youll drink at least eight ounces of water in between each adult beverage. Dehydration is the main cause of a hangover so head it off at the pass with lots of H2O. Never mix, never worry. Its one of Marthas most memorable lines from, Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf and its solid advice. If youre sipping wine, dont switch to tequila shots at midnight, and if youre starting with martinis, dont suddenly start asking for rum and Cokes. Your innards will thank you later. Darker beverages make for worse hangovers. Whiskey, rum and red wine arent as forgiving as lighter liquids. Youre better off with white wine, vodka or gin. Also, mixing your liquor with sweet stuff like orange juice or cola may make it go down easier, but all that sugar contributes to your pain the next day. Before bed, take a Vitamin B Complex with a big glass of water. I dont know why it works, but a doctor once told me its a secret that partying medical professionals swear by.Part II How to Recover from a Hangover I know a Bloody Mary or a Mimosa can sound like fabulous choices when you feel like youre dying and go for it if you want, but its just going to prolong the process. Instead, I suggest water, water and more water. Rest. Seriously. Just lie around and watch The Hangover or Bridesmaids something that makes you laugh, as it truly is the best medicine. Aspirin, Advil or Motrin are Divaapproved. But, I stay away from Tylenol if Ive had one too many. Your liver is trying to recover from the alcohol and acetaminophen can be rough on it. A lot of folks swear by a big greasy breakfast and that cure worked for me when I was younger, but now that Ive graduated to middle age and hangovers last up to two days, Ive found that heavy food and grease only make things worse. I stick with fruits, veggies, soups and saltines. If youve got someone to snuggle with, that helps too. Even experts say that the endorphins released during romance can help you feel better no matter how terrible your headache is. So, good luck, dear readers. Remember, everything in moderation and if youre going out on New Years Eve, do take an Uber or a taxi. After all, the worst hangover ever is waking up in the slammer and its definitely a terrible way to start your year. So, heres to a MUCH better 2017 after all, it couldnt be worse, right? Never mind; dont answer that. Cheers! Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week stephanieDAVIS firstname.lastname@example.org

B6-7 BY JAN NORRISjnorris@ oridaweekly.comAn invention called The Tucker, a boon to bed-makers everywhere, hinged on the broken fingernail of its designer. I broke a nail, and hurt my hand making the bed one day, so I told my husband there has to be a better way, said Dolores Dioguardi. The perky 89-year-old says that at any age, Its hard to lift a ridiculously heavy mattress while trying to tuck a sheet under it at the same time. Shes an admitted neat-freak and takes time from busy days at her new company and from playing golf to make her beds every day. Ive read all these comments from people who laugh about making beds. Who takes the time and who cares? she quoted. She laughs. I do. I am very fussy about a tidy house. We always make our bed. I believe in the old saying, Messy house: messy head. And its true. Its so much more pleasant to work in a neat and tidy space. She and her husband, Philip, set out to invent a sheet-tucking implement. We were drawing pictures together. So he made a prototype out of cardboard and then out of plastic, she said. Finally, We were able to secure a designer.Just tuck itSimple device makes bed-making a breezeSEE TUCK, B4 SAMII STOLOFF PHOTOGRAPHYThe people behind The Tucker: Jennifer Jackson, Dolores Dioguardi and Philip Dioguardi The Tucker helps push the sheet in deeper.

Its a paddlelike implement with a handle that glides under the mattress like a spatula with one push, neatly tucking in the sheet. The bed maker need not risk a broken nail, or worse, a sprained wrist. Its ultra-easy to use, she said. We have a video online showing how to use it. One is showing a child doing it, putting a neat corner on the sheet. Then it was on to production and distribution. Enter Jennifer Jackson, the couples bookkeeper and assistant. We were able to proceed to where we are today because of Jennifers brilliance on the computer, she said. The inventor insisted on The Tucker being made in the United States. I investigated molding people, and found Prime Molding Technologies in Riviera Beach. The company uses a plastic injection process to create unique products. Its not a huge company its middle sized. We met with Richard Volpe; he had what I needed, said Mrs. Dioguardi, a retired New York talent agent. Then it was on to sales, packaging and shipping. Thats one of the best parts of the story, she said. Jennifer told me about Palm Beach Habilitation Center. They have a thrift shop, and the center, where they employ the handicapped, veterans and the disabled. We met with Gary Strother. He took us through the entire place the packing and shipping areas. These lovely people with beautiful smiles greeted us as they worked. I left with tears in my eyes. I said, Weve got to do this! They must be our factory. It was a win-win on all counts, she said. All these things fall into place. When things work out that I can help somebody else, Im happy. David Lin, the vice president of Palm Beach Habilitation Center, explains they are a training program for people with disabilities. We train them how to package different products for shipping. Workers earn competitive wages based on the industry. Its based on speed and productivity, but the piece rate is based on $10.40 an hour, he said. The center has five or six workers packing up The Tucker; it could change based on orders, however. Mrs. Dioguardis company doesnt need to maintain a warehouse full of inventory because of the two local companies. Once made in the Riviera Beach facility, its delivered to the Habilitation Center for packing and bulk distribution. For small individual sales, theyre still mailed out by hand from her home. Sales right now are through Amazon and on the website. We investigated Amazon, and fished out the information about how to get started. Were now in almost every state including Hawaii, Canada, and we just started with the UK. Everything is taking off like greased lightning, she said, laughing. With Ms. Jacksons help, theyve begun to promote The Tucker to the major hotel groups. Lowes Hotels is interested for its housekeeping staff. Theyve responded positively, she said. The St. Regis in New York, and MGM Grand in Vegas are looking at us, and Reno. Were looking at hospitals and assisted living places. Theyre hoping to soon get into retailers like Bed, Bath & Beyond. Response everywhere has been positive. Weve got a lot of thumbs ups (likes) on Facebook. Im amazed at how its spread. What about taking it to Shark Tank, the TV show where inventors meet investors who can push a product to worldwide instant stardom? I think about Shark Tank. Everybody has asked us, but its much too soon. I dont have a years worth of income to talk about yet, she said. Her financial adviser has an in on the show, but she still isnt ready. Besides, she says, I dont want anything. I just want to open a door. Shed like to give back if she does see a terrific success. She and her 96-year-old husband already are community benefactors. They worked to raise money to help the Maltz Jupiter Theatre when it was sold and converted from Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre. Along the way, shes helped build it out to its present form. Now she has a new beneficiary in mind, along with the theater. Someday if were ever as big as we want, wed like to help the Palm Beach Habilitation Center. What they do in general is amazing. The Tuckers suggested retail is $29.95 for The Tucker Twins a package of two. Because in every home, theres more than one bed, she reasoned. Theyre getting a kick out of marking and have trademarked the slogan: Just Tuck It! and on the video (you can watch it on YouTube), a shot of a beautiful globe with the words: The world found a better way to make a bed! Theyve sold several thousand but exact figures are proprietary info. She did say, My income hasnt surpassed my investment. Theyre hoping for worldwide sales soon. We have reached almost every state in the union. Just thinking about the population of our country, to reach every household would be a miracle. Were never giving up. Im strong-willed about getting things done. The reason? I dont have much time. When youre this old, you have to move quickly. The Tucker is available through Amazon.com.TUCKFrom page 1COURTESY IMAGESEven though its ultra-easy to use, there is a how-to video that shows how The Tucker works.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. The Right Brokerage for YouIf you want to invest in stocks, you probably want to open an account at a good brokerage. Its easy to do, but choose your brokerage carefully, selecting one that best suits your needs. Here are some considerations: Minimum initial deposit: Some brokerages require at least several thousand dollars, while others have no minimum. Cost: All other things being equal, favor brokerages that charge little per trade. You can find fees of $7 or less to more than $100. Consider other fees, too, such as IRA custodian fees, wire transfer fees, account inactivity fees, annual fees, etc. Research: Many brokerages offer free company research reports. See what each of your contenders offers. Mutual funds: The range of funds offered by brokerages varies widely. If youre interested in particular funds, see whether theyre available. Know, though, that you can usually buy into funds directly from their companies, bypassing brokerages. Non-stock offerings: If youre interested in investing in bonds, for example, see whether theyre offered. Usability: Look into how easy to use each brokerages online trading system seems to be and how user-friendly its website is. Customer service: Ask some questions of the customer service department to see how responsive it is. Banking: Some brokerages feature banking services, such as check-writing, money market accounts, credit cards, ATM cards, direct deposit and more. Look for these if you want them. Convenience: Would you rather place trade orders through an actual person, your phone or online? See which brokerages offer what you want. Some of these factors are more important than others. For example, if you trade only twice a year, commission costs shouldnt matter as much. Make a list of all the features you need and how vital they are, then evaluate each contender on each measure.

Popular LossesIve made too many dumb investments to remember them all, but my investment in Banco Popular stands out as one of the dumbest. I was using the companys dividend reinvestment plan, building up my position in the company for a couple of years, right before it crashed hard. I was investing in the wrong sector (banking) at the wrong time (the Great Recession). I lost a bundle on that one. C.C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Its easier to see which countries, industries and companies to avoid when youre looking in the rearview mirror. The credit crisis took many investors by surprise and sank the financial industry for quite a while, putting some companies out of business altogether. Long-term investors need to expect occasional market downturns and be prepared to ride them out. Diversifying your portfolio across a range of industries (and perhaps countries) can also help. While many banks have recovered nicely, Banco Popular has struggled some. It has recently been looking into selling some nonperforming assets in order to strengthen its balance sheet. Its smart to learn how to study companies in industries that interest you. With banks, for example, some measures to assess include book value and net interest margin (which is total interest income less total interest expense, showing how much the bank is making from its lending and borrowing). Learn more about banks and perhaps favor conservatively run ones. A Healthy FutureIts been a tough road recently for shareholders of drugstore giant CVS Health (NYSE: CVS). The company has shown moderate results in its front-ofthe-store business (think shampoo, diapers, soap, chips and beer), with comps (sales at stores open more than a year) falling 1 percent during the most recent quarter. But the pharmacy business keeps humming along nicely, with comps rising 3.4 percent during the same time frame. The reason for the stocks recent fall has to do with pharmacy accounts leaving CVS and migrating over to rival Walgreens Boots Alliance. Prime Therapeutics the nations fourth-largest pharmacy benefits manager and Tricare which provides insurance to active-duty and retired military personnel decided to use Walgreens to meet their members prescription needs. Those changes caused CVS to lower its expectations for the coming year. The stock has already fallen 30 percent from its May highs. But you cant ignore what a cash cow this company is. Over the last 12 months, it has generated $9 billion in free cash flow and used only 20 percent of that to pay its dividend, which recently yielded 2.1 percent. With its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the mid-teens, the stock offers a great entry point for retirees looking for a solid business. (The Motley Fool has recommended CVS Health.) I trace my roots back to 1897, when two fellows created a medical device import partnership. Their first sale was reportedly a $2.50 glass syringe. I acquired many companies over the years and began making surgical instruments in the early 1900s. I later developed the all cotton elastic (ACE) bandage. Today, based in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, Im a $35 billion medical technology giant, focused on improving medical discovery, diagnostics and the delivery of care. I bought hospital supply and services specialist CareFusion for about $12 billion last year and employ more than 40,000 people in 50 countries. Who am I? (Answer: Becton, Dickinson and Co.) Big Sales Not EnoughQCan a company be a poor investment even though its revenue is substantial? R.N., Ocala, FloridaIt can. Revenue (or sales) represents only a companys top line. The bottom line, earnings (or profits), is arguably more important, and you reach it only after subtracting expenses such as salaries, supplies and taxes. Its critical to know how much (if anything) the company keeps as profit, and whether important figures, such as revenue and earnings, are increasing.Groupon, for example, has roughly doubled its revenue over the past five years, but most of those years featured net losses, not profits. Meanwhile, Tesla Motors revenue has skyrocketed over the past five years, with net losses in each. Neither company is necessarily a bad long-term investment, but its important to look beyond just revenue and revenue growth. Rapidly growing companies will often invest all available dollars in further growth, resulting in losses in early years. Even ailing companies can be good investments sometimes if they turn themselves around.With all companies, study their financial reports, see if theyre gaining or losing market share, how strong their competitive advantages are, how much faith you have in their management and whether their futures seem promising. Look for red flags such as major legal problems or investigations into accounting. Or just skip them and focus instead on profitable companies. ***QWhy does the stock markets value fluctuate daily? T.W., Erie, Pennsylv aniaAThe stock market is made up of thousands of companies stocks, each of which rises or falls according to what investors expect of them. If, often due to some news, there are more buyers than sellers, a stocks price will likely rise and vice versa. Want more information about stocks? Send us an email to email@example.com.

WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017B10 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTOS Northeast, South boost November home sales total NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSA surge in the Northeast and a smaller gain in the South pushed existing-home sales up in November for the third consecutive month, according to the National Association of Realtors. Total completed transactions rose 0.7 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.61 million in November from a downwardly revised 5.57 million in October. Novembers sales pace is the highest since February 2007 (5.79 million) and is 15.4 percent higher than a year ago. The median existing-home price for all housing types in November was $234,900, up 6.8 percent from November 2015. Total housing inventory at the end of November dropped 8 percent to 1.85 million existing homes available for sale, and is now 9.3 percent lower than a year ago (2.04 million). Unsold inventory is at a four-month supply, down from 4.3 months in October. Existing housing supply at the beginning of the year was inadequate and is now even worse heading into 2017, Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said. Rental units are also seeing this shortage, he added, and as a result, both home prices and rents continue to far outstrip incomes in much of the country. In the Northeast, existing-home sales hiked 8 percent in November to an annual rate of 810,000, and are now 15.7 percent above a year ago. The median price in the Northeast was $263,000, which is 3.3 percent above November 2015. In the Midwest, existing-home sales decreased 2.2 percent to an annual rate of 1.33 million, but are still 18.8 percent above a year ago. The median price in the Midwest was $180,300, up 6.5 percent from a year ago. Existing-home sales in the South rose 1.4 percent to an annual rate of 2.22 million, and are now 11.6 percent above November 2015. The median price in the South was $206,900, up 9.2 percent from a year ago. Existing-home sales in the West declined 1.6 percent to an annual rate of 1.25 million in November, but are still 19.0 percent higher than a year ago. The median price in the West was $345,400, up 8.5 percent from November 2015.

Sachar. Divont Pubishers. 334 pages. Trade paperback, $12.25.What if high-ranking elected government officials as well as major security agency personnel were engaged in a plot to undermine official U.S. policy? What if they had a plan to force the U.S. into a war in the Middle East? What would be the chances of such a plot being successful? What would it take to detect and thwart it? Who would it take to lead the charge? The answer to the last question is that it would take a man with many names, one of which is Kent Taylor. A former Navy SEAL LCDR, Taylor is a man with unusual skills and a dark background. The damage he has seen and done has made him a lot of enemies. His simple cover story is that he died many years before this threat was set in motion. He is leading a secluded life with his wife on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. For his own survival and that of other family members, he has become imprisoned in paradise. Now that all comes to an end. Taylor finds himself teaming up with three FBI retirees to fight the rogue group that sees its interests requiring that the U.S. be manipulated into a foreign war. The skills of Taylor, former FBI Special Agent Bill Gladding and former agents Jonas and Sally Blair combine to lead the battle. Others assist them, just as many other characters play roles as part of the rogue effort. Some readers might find there are just too many characters to sort out. Author Vincent Sachar builds his plot out of seemingly disconnected pieces, jumping from location to location, crisis to crisis, character to character, outlining the major plot by defining the dots that have to be followed and linked. You know, follow the dots. A major dot is Bergam Industries, a large upstate New York company whose legitimate businesses have cloaked illegal doings like money laundering. Now something is going on that involves the secret presence of African visitors. Smuggling perhaps? One employee suffers a mysterious accidental death. Another, suspicious and fearful, brings a computer jump drive to his lawyers office. This lawyer just happens to be the aforementioned Jonas Blair. Then the employee mysteriously disappears. After being threatened by thugs who arrive to retrieve the stolen property, Jonas brings Taylor and the others into the effort to stop the network of rogue officials and operatives. A scene in the Congo, yet another dot on the plot map, reveals an African man in hiding, He is in the service of U.S. interests. But which ones? The legitimate ones or the pretenders? The fact that he is murdered suggests the answer. There too we learn about the important resource that Bergam Industries wishes to control, a resource needed in electronic devices, perhaps armaments or controls. Readers come to understand the motives, plans and abilities of the opposing forces. They also see how Taylors background has complicated matters for the members of his family who consider him dead. Some are in witness protection, including his daughter, Emily, who has been living as Rosemary Chambers. Taylor hopes the time will come when he can reconnect with her without putting her life in jeopardy. The pressure builds from scene to scene, and the red-hot action is governed by several adjustments that need to be made. The rogues are clever, resourceful and merciless. Taylors team is outnumbered, but he is an amazing force in himself and also a thoughtful and charismatic leader. This over-the-top thriller is bound to build the authors audience and satisfy those who are already fans of his work. An attorney with a passion for writing, Mr. Sachar earned his juris doctor from St. Johns Law School in New York. Despite much success in business, he now writes full-time, having left his most recent position as managing director of a global consulting company. He lives in Miramar, between Miami and Fort Lauderdale. Nowhere on Earth continues the saga of the character he introduced in The Nowhere Man and further developed in Nowhere Out. He frequently speaks at book events and author panels. Murder at Pearl Spring is coming soon. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Second Time Around explores love during the golden years SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Marco Players present Henry Denkers The Second Time Around, an exploration of the emotions and reactions from adult children when the death of a parent leaves a surviving parent who gets bitten by the love bug. Brett Marston directs the cast that includes Carl Back as the widower Samuel and Carole Musgrave as the widow Laura, who meet in a radiologists office and begin spending time with one another since they share many of the same ailments and interests. The trouble begins when they get their adult children, played by Diana Back and Tyler Miller, together at Samuels apartment to announce their plans. Kelsey Browne, Todd Irby, Mo Rahman and Taylor Miller round out the cast. The play raises a number of issues regarding senior sexuality. Is it wrong for widows/widowers to love again? Can they remain faithful to the memory of their spouses? Can adult children accept the notion that their parents are people with companion needs and desires? With the children upset at their parents willingness to shack up, the play also stirs up memories of the societal norms and pressures of the 1950s, s and 0s. Seniors will enjoy this play in which the old folks, often considered the cranky members of society, are the only sane, well-adjusted characters in the show. Artistic Director Beverly Dahlstrom cautions that perhaps younger adults should take this play as a warning of what their own parents are capable of. The Second Time Around opens Wednesday, Jan. 4, and runs at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and at 3 p.m. Sunday through Jan. 22 at The Marco Players Theater in Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd. Attend the first week of the show and be entered to win a dinner cruise for two on The Marco Island Princess. Tickets are $28 and $30 and can be purchased at www.TheMarcoPlayers.com or by calling the box office at 642-7270.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA Star Wars Story, among many others, didnt leave me with the sense of cinematic satisfaction we all crave, but rather the feeling that movies now more than ever are overpromising and underdelivering. Worse, its storytelling thats being sacrificed each of the three titles above were visual spectacles that were inept in terms of narrative, and this seems to be a trend throughout the industry. Its not a coincidence, then, that the best movies of 2016 listed below are in many cases examples of great stories that were strengthened by splendid visual palettes. 10) Hacksaw RidgeSummit Entertainment tried to keep Mel Gibsons name out of its promotional material for this film, and given what the media has relayed regarding his personal history, thats understandable. Theres no denying, however, that Mr. Gibson is one of the finest directors working today, and Hacksaw Ridge was an excellent reminder of that. Its not just the powerful WWII story of the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor that was so engaging, nor the slow-motion action or tremendous performances. Really, it was this: That main character Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) is driven by his religious beliefs, but it never feels like a religious movie. Instead, its about a man who sticks to his virtuous principles and ends up being 100 percent correct in doing so. In limited theaters now; home video availability TBD. 9) The Edge of SeventeenWhip smart, clever and painfully funny (in a good way), its a movie that reminds us how agonizing teenage years can be (and for some of us, how agonizing they were). Writer/director Kelly Fremon Craigs debut feature sports wonderful performances from Hailee Steinfeld and Woody Harrelson, and never compromises with teen movie clichs. In limited theaters now; available on home video Feb. 14. 8) Nocturnal Animals My first reaction to director Tom Fords (A Single Man) latest was one of confusion and intrigue. The more I thought about it, however, the more brilliant I found it to be. Art imitates life in a variety of ways, and in doing so it allows for multiple interpretations of its meaning. This is ironically an extraordinarily difficult message for art (such as movies) to convey, and Nocturnal Animals did it perfectly. In theaters now.7) Hunt For The WilderpeopleThis New Zealand import was sadly under-seen upon its release over the summer, and that is unfortunate. The story about an orphan (a delightful Julian Dennison) living with his cranky uncle (Sam Neill) in the New Zealand wilderness couldve been trite in a number of ways, but writer/ director Taika Waititis film is sharp, extremely witty and surprisingly moving. Now available on home video.6) ZootopiaThe best animated film of the year was wildly creative, funny and touching, and you dont have to love animals to appreciate all the treasures it offers. Now available on home video.5) Fences Its a look at the African-American experience in 1950s Pittsburgh, highlighted by a strong ensemble and steady direction from Denzel Washington. Viola Davis and Washington won Tony Awards for playing these characters on Broadway in 2010; its certainly not out of the question for Oscars to be in their near future as well. In theaters now.4) Hell or High Water The what dont you want? restaurant scene is the best single scene of the year, and a reminder that great movies are about compelling characters and the world they inhabit. This film will not make you want to go to West Texas, but it also couldnt have been set anywhere else, and creating such a tremendous sense of location, and the values therein, is a rare accomplishment by director David MacKenzie. Throw in a sure supporting actor Oscar nomination for Jeff Bridges and you have an absolute must-see. Now available on home video.3) O.J.: Made In AmericaIt screened at Sundance last January and opened theatrically in New York, so it is Oscar eligible, though you (hopefully) watched it on ABC/ESPN (dont confuse it with the 10-part FX miniseries). Director Ezra Edelmans five-part, nearly eight-hour documentary exposed not just O.J. Simpsons story, but also his storys place in modern American history, specifically Los Angeles. The results are insightful, infuriating and revelatory, with the cumulative result being a documentary masterpiece. Now available on home video.2) Manchester By The Sea Its the most depressing movie of the year, but also the best acted and perhaps the best written. Casey Affleck seems a shoo-in for the best actor Oscar, and deservedly so. But dont forget about Patrick Hedges and Michelle Williams as well, both of whom shine in supporting roles. Writer/ director Kenneth Lonergan moves the film along at a gradual and steady pace, effectively allowing us to be immersed in the characters lives. Its profoundly poignant and expertly made. Now in theaters.1) La La Land Sometimes movies are pure magic that make you smile, and this is one of those times. No film this year made me feel better, more energized or alive. Its an homage to classic Hollywood musicals, a beautiful love story, and an altogether unforgettable experience thats an absolute pleasure to look at and listen to. When its over you may cry because there are sad moments, but really theyll be tears of joy at the marvel you just embraced. Expect multiple Oscar nominations and wins for this new classic. Now in theaters. Honorable mention: Of the major comic book releases this year, Captain America: Civil War told the best story, Doctor Strange had the best visual effects, and Deadpool was by far the most fun; Weiner, Life, Animated and De Palma were strong documentaries that are absolutely worth a look; Kubo and the Two Strings is the best animated film in years that was not made by Disney Animation or Pixar; Captain Fantastic delighted in its subversiveness, themes and performances; Lights Out was the best horror movie of 2016; Moonlight did many things right, and will likely receive many Oscar nominations, but has a weak third act and is not an overall great movie; and How To Be Single shared the important message that being single is a terrific opportunity to find oneself before entering a relationship.Worst of 2016In a year of disappointments, letdowns and total flops (Inferno), a select few movies emerged as notably more terrible than the rest. Here are the movies I reviled the most, in no particular order until the end, because it makes sense to save the worst for last. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was certainly one of the biggest movies of the year in terms of scale, and given that its such a clutter ed mess, its just as big a disappointment. The title promises a showdown between the two comic book icons, and their fight finishes with the realization that their mothers have the same first name, which makes them BFFs forever. I wish I were kidding. Add to this a poorly structured story and you have yet another reminder that Warner Bros. cant get the DC Comics canon right (Suicide Squad was another example of this) while Disneys Marvel movies dont miss. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen are Oscar winners (No Country For Old Men) and have made some great movies (Fargo). However, Hail, Caesar! is probably the worst film theyve made: The story is scattered, and the homages to old Hollywood play like disconnected sketches rather than as part of a greater whole. George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson and everyone else involved have been much better before, and will be better again. But the stain of Hail, Caesar! will never fully leave them. Central Intelligence is an ironic title for a movie this colossally stupid, poorly acted and embarrassingly scripted. Who in their right mind casts Dwayne Johnson as the wacky guy opposite a straight-edged Kevin Hart? After 20 years, is Independence Day: Resurgence really the best they could do in a sequel? Will Smiths career has already stagnated imagine the vitriol if he signed up for this mistake of a movie as well. Thankfully for him he avoided it. Sadly, no one else involved in this disaster of a disaster pic can claim the same. Speaking of dreadful sequels, Bad Santa 2 is another one that bastardizes our fond memories of its original with unfunny jokes and a half-hearted story. The first movie was hilariously offensive and inappropriate this one is just offensive and inappropriate. Perhaps the only thing worse than high-minded platitudes is pretentious high-minded platitudes, and WienerDog had them in spades. Feel free to flick off the screen when its over I guarantee youll want to. X-Men: Apocalypse is everything you dont want a big-budget blockbuster to be: terrible and boring. As in: It has a terrible, boring villain, a terrible, boring story, terribly murky visual effects and a bored cast. Ben-Hur has now been made three times for the big screen, and this version is by far the worst. Its barely watchable, as a $26 million box office gross (on a $100 million budget) reflects. Morgan director Luke Scott is the son of Ridley Scott. It seems the apple does fall far from the tree. Deepwater Horizon somehow, someway, found a way to include every clich a movie like this could possibly have, and probably invented a few new ones along the way. The survivors, and those who perished in the April 2010 Gulf of Mexico oilrig explosion on which the movie is based, deserve better. And finally, the worst movie of 2016: Keeping Up With The Joneses. It wasnt just bad, it was a full-out abomination that was offensive to women. Consider: The equivalent of Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm having bro time by drinking snake wine is Isla Fisher and Gal Gadot trying on lingerie and doing kegel exercises. Come on. Add in an inept story, facile characters and bland visual effects and you wont just want your money back, youll also be left yearning for the part of your soul that it crushes with its awfulness.

Tuesday, January 3Best of the 50s, 60s, 70s with Joe MarinoTuesday, January 10Live Tropical Steel Pan with J Robert Anniversary Broadway Palm presents Phantom BY TOM HALLFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre presents Yeston and Kopits Phantom through Feb. 11. Directed by Brian Enzman and choreographed by Amy Marie McCleary, Phantom stars Troy Bruchwalski as the Phantom and newcomer Maxwell Porterfield as Christine. The musical has an interesting pedigree. At the time they decided to adapt Gaston Lerouxs timeless love story into a musical, Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit were unaware that Andrew Lloyd Webber was doing the same. In fact, the duo was putting the finishing touches on Phantom and making plans to take their project to Broadway when Variety magazine announced that Lloyd Webber was about to open The Phantom of the Opera in London. Although the two versions were different, Yeston and Kopits backers had no desire to compete with the man who had taken Cats to Broadway. The backers pulled their financial support. But quality work has a way of finding its way to the stage, and many believe that Yeston and Kopits Phantom is more passionate, emotional and enchanting than Webbers musical. More like an operetta, it to a greater extent accurately pays homage to the time (the 1890s) and place (Paris) in which the story is set. Since it was first brought to the stage at Houstons Theatre Under the Stars in January 1991, Phantom has been produced worldwide more than 1,000 times, developing its own loyal following in the process. Like the 1910 novel, the musical tells the heartbreaking story of a disfigured musical genius by the name of Erik and his muse, a beautiful ingnue named Christine Daae. Their musical affair unfolds deep in the catacombs of the Paris Opera House, where the Phantom finds salvation in Christines breathtaking voice. He plots to make her the star of the opera in place of the new owners wife, Carlotta, whose voice the Phantom finds more grating than great. Mr. Bruchwalski just appeared in Irving Berlins White Christmas, where he plays the role of showman Bob Wallace, at the Broadway Palm. He holds a bachelor of music in opera from the Cleveland Institute of Music. Other credits include Father in Ragtime, King Arthur/ Sir Lionel in Camelot, Freddy-Eynsford Hill in My Fair Lady, Javert in Les Miserables, Shrek in Shrek: the Musical and Gaston in Beauty and the Beast. Ms. Porterfield, a classically trained soprano, has appeared on stages throughout the United States. Highlights from the more than 20 roles in her repertoire include Blonde in The Abduction from the Seraglio, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, Pamina in The Magic Flute, Despina in Cosi fan tutte, Fr asquita in Carmen and Julie Jordan in Carousel.

Find a Location & View Our Menu at www.ribcity.com LATEST FILMSJackieIs it worth $10? YesJackie takes place in the days after Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedys husband, President John F. Kennedy, was assassinated in 1963. To her the time was inscrutably painful, dealing with not just the loss of her spouse and the father of her children, but also funeral arrangements and the establishment of her husbands legacy. The movies content pivots on an interview Jackie (Natalie Portman) gives to a journalist (Billy Crudup) at her Hyannis Port, Mass., home. Its loosely inspired by a real interview she gave to Life magazines Theodore H. White. Flashbacks of her giving a tour of the White House in 1961 are intercut with her actions immediately following the assassination, including what it was like at the hospital, on Air Force One coming home and telling her children their father is dead. With the interviewer sympathetic and accommodating of her desires, Jackie reveals enough trauma to get him to trust her (I tried to hold his head together, she says) and then skillfully frames her husbands Camelot legacy. A cynic might say coercing the journalist was a brilliant piece of manipulation, whereas an optimist (or sentimentalist?) will believe this was born out of the grieving emotion of a heartbroken widow. As seen in Jackie, the most difficult task Jackie Kennedy took on prior to this was renovating the White House. Now her world is upside down, and in spite of her searing heartbreak shes still exposed to the public eye and political maneuvering (clearly, not everyone has her best interests at heart). One of the best things about director Pablo Larrains (No) film is its curiosity: He wants to show us who Jackie was, and how she dealt with all aspects of the assassination aftermath. It answers many of the questions weve naturally had for the past 50-plus years, and its endlessly intriguing because of it. That said, its tough to say how much of Jackie is true. Noah Oppenheim (Allegiant) wrote an original screenplay for what we see here, meaning its not adapted from previously published material (Mr. Crudups character is credited as The Journalist, not as Mr. White). Furthermore, the films press notes do not reveal a source for the script. A cursory Internet search reveals Mr. Oppenheim extensively researched archival materials and footage from this period, which means at least the broad strokes are true, if not entirely accurate. For example, its known that Jackie asked for books about Abraham Lincolns funeral from the Library of Congress, and this is consistent with whats in the film. But there are also scenes in which Jackie speaks with a priest (John Hurt), and there are no records that indicate this conversation occurred, nor is there a way to know what Jackie may have said to Bobby Kennedy (Peter Sarsgaard) in private as they both grieved. (In the interest of not being hypocritical, heres my source for this info: http://www.vulture.com/2016/12/jackiescreenwriter-noah-oppenheim.html.) Ms. Portman is superb in capturing Jackies walk, talk and essence. Its a difficult performance. Take particular note of the way the actress conveys Jackies vulnerability and strength, and how even in the hardest of times she had the conviction to fight for what she believed was the right way for her husband to be remembered. If only Ms. Portmans performance came in a better overall movie. Like its title character, Jackie is a bit scattered and as a result, it struggles to add up to much more than a series of intriguing insights about an heiress. For many, as it was for me, Mr. Portmans performance and this intrigue will be enough. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Curiously, the famous photo of JFK Jr. saluting his fathers casket is not recreated for the lm, though many other notable moments from the procession were.

ANTIQUESPrices tick upward for Victorian novelty clocks BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Clocks were an important part of the Victorian home. Large grandfather clocks were kept in the front hall or living room to tell time, ring chimes on the hour and even tell the phases of the moon. The only public sources of time were the train station, city hall or church tower clocks. Smaller clocks that told time were kept on the fireplace mantle. Almost all clocks had to be wound for up to eight days. Bradley & Hubbard, a Connecticut company that made many iron and other metal items, had an 1857 patent for a figural novelty clock that could blink its eyes. Blinkers, also called winkers, were made in many shapes. An organ grinder with a monkey, Topsey, Mammy, Sambo the Banjo Player and John Bull examples were sold in auctions during the last five years for prices from $500 to about $1,000. John Bull is a character who was a popular symbol of England from 1712 to the 1940s. Q: I have a coffee bin that was in my grandparents general store in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Its marked Dilworths Prime Grade Coffee. The markings were made with a stencil. Does it have any value? A: Dilworths was in business in Pittsburgh during the late 1800s and early 1900s. John Dilworth was one of the founders of a wholesale grocery company, which operated under various names until 1881, when it became Dilworth Brothers Co. Collectors like early advertising items and if the lettering is in good condition, your bin has value. Large wooden coffee bins sell for $300 to $500. Q: I have a complete collection of Frances Hook porcelain children and plates from the 1950s-1970s. They were put out by Roman. I have the original boxes. Id like to sell them, but the local antiques dealers arent interested. Im willing to take them to someone if I can find someone who would enjoy them. A: Frances Hook was a commercial artist who did work for several major corporations and appeared in magazines. Shes known for her drawings of children done for Northern Tissue in the 1950s and s and sold as prints. She began making figurines, plates and prints for Roman Inc. in 1979. Frances Hook died in 1983. Limited-edition figurines and plates were popular in the 1970s and s, but are hard to sell today. Most sell for a few dollars online. If you dont want to try to sell them online, you might be able to donate them to a charity sale or store in your area. Q: I live in the Chicago area and just recently inherited a large collection of American cut glass. How would I go about pricing and or selling the collection? Is there a source around here that I should consult? Any information would be greatly appreciated.
A: Some cut glass sells for high prices. Many pieces sell for over $100 and a few sell for over $1,000. If its a large collection, an auction may be the best way to sell it. Contact a dealer or auction house in your area who already is selling some cut glass. There are also a few sites devoted to glass with history, pattern identification and buy-and-sell posts. There are serious collectors and buyers who want just a few pieces because of early memories. Are your pieces signed? Perfect? Large? All of this adds to value. Search the internet for online auctions and sales. Contact the American Cut Glass Association (www.cutglass.org) to learn more. Q: I inherited far too much stuff after my grandparents (and then my mother) passed. One of those items is a 4-inchby-4-inch Steuben Stars & Stripes prism sculpture. I have the red box it came in, but one of the edges of the glass has a small chip. Im wondering if there was there any notable value to the piece before the chip and if there might be any residual value despite the chip. A: Peter Aldridge, a British designer and sculptor, designed this Stars & Stripes sculpture for Steuben. Its part of a group of limited-edition pieces in modern shapes that are engraved or embellished with gold or silver pieces. A smaller Stars & Stripes sculpture in a slightly different shape is listed as Designed by Peter Aldridge, 2001/2015 and sells for $450. An early 4-inch-by-4-inch Stars & Stripes prism sculpture like yours, in its original red leather case, sold at auction a few years ago for more than $1,400. The sculpture must be perfect to sell for such a high price. The chip on your sculpture lowers the value. Tip: In snowy weather, make tracks both in and out of your door. One set of tracks leaving the house is an invitation to an intruder. Or perhaps you could walk out of the house backward. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

There, we would peruse table after table of shells, sponges and coral that had been harvested from seabeds around the world. If I was lucky, Grandma might buy me a small shell or one of the plastic toys made from the injection-molding machine they had near some of the tanks of saltwater fish. Wed have ice cream cones or Cokes and return home with our finds of the day. We now know that type of harvesting, in which tons of sand, shell and other products are scraped from the ocean floor, is environmentally devastating. But we were nave. Im never surprised at human fascination with shells we were a halfhour at most from Sanibel, which boasts some of the finest beaches in the world for shelling. The pinks and the purples of the coquinas, whelks and other shells always glisten in the sands, especially in the mornings. I remember people using row after row of conch shells as borders for flowerbeds and as hanging pots, with philodendron, air plants and other flora dangling from them. Theyve held an allure for millennia just think of Botticellis The Birth of Venus. Yes, the girl on the half-shell. You can see them peeking out in baroque art of the 17th and 18th centuries. The Victorians loved shells, too, and incorporated them in day-to-day items. The Industrial Age meant that even people of modest means could have the glow of silver plate in their homes. I have an 1860s spoon warmer in the shape of a nautilus shell it would have held warm water to keep spoons from cooling in the days before central heat. Imagine how exotic those shapes would have been in a day when people rarely traveled beyond the next county or state or even saw an ocean, for that matter. And I have a large collection of 20thcentury shells by the Cambridge Glass Co. in its Crown Tuscan color which is a true shell pink. I also have a large clear Cambridge shell bowl that holds something equally precious shells my grandparents and I collected over the better part of half a century. I look at those, and I remember trips to the beach and trips to the Shell Factory with my grandmother. I know shed be pleased.

Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers; 4892211 or www.gannonsantiques.com. Cost: $45 The skinny: The price tag indicated that this pitcher was 90 years old, but it didnt have any of the streamlined Art Deco styling that would have been part of something made in the 1920s. A quick at the hallmark determined it was made by James W. Tufts of Boston, a company that closed in 1915. A more likely date for the piece is sometime around the 1880s or s. Its silver over copper and has the right amount of patina (those find marks from years of use) to give it a warm glow. But its the shell motif that makes it stand out for me. The design is vividly detailed. Its beautiful and its timeless just like the ocean. THE FIND:Silver-plated Victorian pitcher made by James W. Tufts of BostonSCOTT SIMMONS/ FLORIDA WEEKLYThis water pitcher by James W. Tufts of Boston was made in the 1880s or s. Silver-plated goods became affordable for the masses around the time of the Industrial Age. Pieces such as this would have appealed to middleclass buyers wanting the glow of silver in their homes.

What else is Scott up to? Lee F., Youngstown, OhioA: Investigation Discovery just announced that it has greenlighted the script for the true-crime movie Final Vision, which will star Scott and Dave Annable (from Brothers and Sisters). Final Vision tells the story of Jeffrey MacDonald (played by Scott), a handsome, Ivy League-educated Green Beret Army doctor who was convicted of murdering his pregnant wife and two young daughters in the middle of the night.One of the most horrifying murder cases of its time, Final Vision is told through the eyes of bestselling author Joe McGinniss (played by Dave), who was approached by Mr. MacDonald and asked to write a book about his personal nightmare as he was about to go to trial. Beginning as a story about an innocent man being railroaded by a flawed legal system, the movie takes viewers through a twisted psychological thriller that exposes a far more sinister man behind the hero Mr. MacDonald portrays. Q: Ive been diligently watching Major Crimes for years, but suddenly its not on anymore. Can you tell me whats going on, and please dont say it has been canceled. Oliver T., via emailA: Dont worry, Oliver. The police/ crime procedural has been on winter hiatus. Mary McDonnell and company return for the final eight episodes of its fifth season beginning Feb. 22 at 9 p.m. Also returning to the fold are G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Jonathan Del Arco, Camryn Manheim, Jon Tenney and Graham Patrick Martin. This winter, the squad moves to fill the vacant post of assistant chief that Fritz Howard has been occupying on a temporary basis. Sanchez tries once again to become a father; Flynn and Sharon move nearer to matrimony; Provenza considers retirement; Rusty interns for DDA Hobbs as he looks toward attending law school; Buzz attempts to help out the family of the man who murdered his father; Sykes confronts an old foe in Mark Hickman; Lt. Mike Tao is instrumental in solving a case dealing with plastic explosives; and Dr. Morales joins the squad for the entire investigation of a personal mystery.

It was on one of these occasions that I found the opportunity for a cocktail while Thing One and Thing Two were finishing up a screening of Sing with their aunt last week. I had taken to opportunity to accomplish a few holiday tasks, but I found 30 extra minutes at Mercato with not a single errand left to do. Then it dawned on me: I could have a private margarita! The bar at Masa was empty (it was still kind of early, dont judge) and I bellied up to order one of the complicated concoctions my heart truly desires: a cucumber margarita featuring Blanco tequila infused with cucumber and mint, Triple Sec and fresh lime juice. As soon as I took my first sip and leaned back to enjoy the peace, my phone dinged to let me know Aunt Alisa was ready to relinquish Thing One and Thing Two back into my custody. Dang it! But she brought them across the center and we all moved to the restaurants comfy couches for lunch, where I enjoyed my drink in good company. One More Thing: We plied the kids with the house-made limeade and strawberry aqua fresca in hopes of getting a few words in edgewise. It worked. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com

ON BEHALF OF THE WYNNS FAMILY 141 Tamiami Trail North, Naples 239.261.7157 wynnsonline.com PAST REPASTSHere are some capsules summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Bills Steak & Seafood, 4221 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 455-5111 Looking for a place to dine and dance? Bills on the East Trail has what youre after. Never mind the somewhat drab exterior. Theres valet parking and a thoughtful staff whose aim is to ensure guests have a great evening. Booths are most distant from the band, so you might land one if you want it. Most people the night of our visit were more interested in proximity to the band and dance floor. There are no real surprises, but the New Englandthemed seafood menu is solid with lots of choices for meat and seafood lovers. Salads were fresh and the New England clam chowder was laden with clams and potatoes. A surf and tur special included a tasty one-pound lobster, corn on the cob and a big baked potato along with the steak, which needed more seasoning. Both the wine list (bottle and glass) and cocktail menu contained a wealth of choices. And the band played almost the whole time we were there. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2016 British Open Pub, 24630 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 9490302 The British Open has been serving fish and chips along with other traditional English and American tavern fare for more than 15 years in the Shoppes at Pelican Landing. Its a rambling warren of forest-green dining rooms with red booths plus a covered patio with its own bar. English pub cuisine may not push any culinary envelopes, but when it comes to hearty and humble fare, the British Open is on par. With tasty but heavy appetizers like toothickly beer-battered onion rings and snappy sausages encased in buttery, flaky pastry, you might not get past the first course with a pint of beer to wash it down. If you do, the restaurants signature fish and chips or pasties stuffed with pot roast are good ways to go. The vegetables served on the side could use more attention. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2016 Fernandez the Bull Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 6539097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a well-chilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari and then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 Omei, Naples Centre Villages, 6434 Naples Blvd.; 631-5633 Its a new location, but Omei continues to serve some of the regions best and most creative Chinese fare, now near the Hollywood Stadium 20 cinemas. Hong Kong chef Mark Cheng and his wife, Mary, operate a lovely establishment serving authentic fare (in other words, no egg foo yung and chop suey). Mr. Chengs duck either the crispy version or the full-out Peking duck is exceptional and well worth the indulgence. Other noteworthy dishes include the salt-and-pepper calamari, shrimp spring rolls and mango prawns and Four Season Spicy Prawns (fried and tossed with sweet chili and sour sauce). For veggie lovers, the stirfried green beans with crunchy onions and dried pepper are terrific. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2015 Sea Salt, 1186 Third St. S., Naples; 434-7258 At almost seven years of age, Sea Salt continues to evolve, no doubt because chef/owner Fabrizio Aielli always loves a new challenge. There are so many welcoming touches here: a dog-friendly patio, dozens of fabulous sea salts lining the wall, Norman Love truffles for dessert, whimsical cotton candy that arrives with the check. And great meals that start with fresh, crusty bread, olive oil and three varieties of sea salt. During our last meal, I loved the duo of ora salmon and ahi tuna served with parsley, popcorn capers, jalapenos and Murray River salt. Grilled octopus with raisin tomatoes, smoked potatoes, crustacean sauce and summer truffle jam was beautiful and delicious. A gluten-free pasta dish was so good we werent sure it really was gluten free but were assured it was, made in-house by the chef who orders the special flour from Italy. Black grouper with favas, English peas, smoked potatoes, mushrooms and black truffle sauce was also terrific. Dont skip dessert here: the crme brulee, Key lime semifreddo and the macarons are all fabulous. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2015 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINE REVIEWCeviche 41 delivers more than just marinated seafoodGood things do indeed come to those who wait. Id planned to visit Ceviche 41 in Bonita Springs several months ago, but when I called the restaurant I was told it was about to close for the remainder of the summer. With the seasonal slowdown especially acute in Bonita, its a tough time for restaurants to hang on until more profitable days. TripAdvisor reviews popping up again in November reminded me I should put it back on the to-do list. Having just opened earlier this year, Ceviche 41 hasnt amassed a lot of posts yet, but most are extremely favorable. And now I know why. The authentic Peruvian food is prepared and plated with obvious skill and care. The dining room has a modernized seaside cottage vibe, with bleached-out paneling, lacy wallpaper, nautical blue accents, white table lanterns and marine pendant lamps dangling over the bar. The effect is casual and upscale at the same time, resembling a spread in Coastal Living magazine. Service is gracious, though being one of only two parties dining at the time might have skewed the experience a bit. Why havent more diners found this little gem? Located in a newer plaza on Old 41 Road, Ceviche 41 could easily be overlooked by well-heeled diners from gated communities who flood restaurants on the U.S 41 and Bonita Beach Road. Heres hoping word of mouth will help attract their attention. Enchanting Spanish guitar music was playing in the background when we sat down for dinner on a recent weeknight. Adult beverage choices are limited to glasses of unnamed red or white wines, which the server will list if asked, and four beers. Considering the quality of South American wines its surprising not to see more choices, but I enjoyed a glass of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc ($8.25) while my companion sipped a malty Cusquea beer ($4). A bowl of cancha, toasted Andean corn kernels, provided a crunchy diversion while we waited the short time it took our appetizers to arrive. Peruvian cuisine has been influenced by the cultures of many diverse immigrants, but corn is one of the culinary pillars, along with potatoes, legumes and grains like quinoa. The half-dozen starters include several variations of ceviche, of course. We chose the mixed seafood version ($15), which contained generous chunks of white fish, squid and octopus brightly infused and cooked with lime juice. Red onion slivers and cilantro added punches of flavor, while giant Peruvian choclo corn, sliced sweet yams and more cancha added heft and interest to the dish. In contrast to the zesty ceviche, the causa ($12) tasted rather tame. Its basically a mashed potato cake chilled and stuffed with your choice of chicken and vegetables ($10) or shrimp and avocado ($12). The potatoes are seasoned with a paste of aji amarillo (mild golden peppers) and a spritz of lime juice, but neither dramatically impacts the flavor. A generous layer of creamy avocado and a few succulent shrimp added richness and sweetness, respectively. Peruvian-Asian fusion can be seen and tasted in dishes such as chaufa (fried rice with various meats, seafood and vegetables). Lomo saltado ($16) is another signature entre with Chinese roots, consisting of beef tenderloin stir-fried with tomatoes and onions, seasoned with soy sauce and served with French fries and white rice. It might sound like an odd combination if youve never had traditional Peruvian food, but it was the comfort food I needed after a rough couple of weeks recovering from an injury. Something about doubling-down on the starches, the mouthwateringly salty sauce and the juicy red meat delivered just the boost I needed. Another rustic staple of Peru is tacu tacu, which at home is usually made with leftover beans and rice mixed with scraps of meat or seafood and maybe an egg to bind it all together into a massive skillet-browned cake. Ceviche 41s tacu tacu salvaje (wild tacu tacu) ($19) is studded with red beans and bits of squid and octopus. Its a simple but hearty side dish for a crisply battered, moist fish fillet (beef steak also is offered) garnished with stripes of piquant black olive sauce. After such heavy main courses, it was a relief that desserts were petite and also inexpensive just $2.99 each. Crema volteada is Perus version of crme caramel or flan, an oh-so-sweet marriage of creamy custard and rich caramel. The quinoa con leche was less impressive, a thin gruel of quinoa and milk with a hint of cinnamon that seemed like an afterthought. We expected something more akin to rice pudding. A slightly disappointing finish did little to reverse the overall pleasure of dining at Ceviche 41. It might not push the envelope like more adventurous Peruvian restaurants in Southwest Florida think Incas Kitchen or El Gaucho Inca but theres room for solid comfort food in this category, too. Heres hoping Ceviche 41 finds the audience it deserves and needs to survive those slim summer months. drew STERWALDcuisine@floridaweekly.com Ceviche 41>> Hours: 5:30-10 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday; 2-8 p.m. Sunday >> Reservations: Accepted >> Credit cards: Accepted >> Price range: Appetizers, $8-$19; entrees, $14-$23 >> Beverages: Beer and wine >> Specialties of the house: Peruvian cuisine >> Volume: Low >> Parking: Plaza lot >> Website: www.ceviche41.comRatings: Food: Service: Atmosphere: 26455 Old 41 Road, Bonita Springs; 301-4634 Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor DREW STERWALD / FLORIDA WEEKLYLomo saltado is a Peruvian stir-fry dish with beef, tomatoes and onions served with rice and French fries.

Kalea Bay is a gated, resort-lifestyle, high-rise community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. More than three months ago it celebrated the topping off of its first residential high-rise tower which is slated to be completed by fall of next year. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. The incredibly designed residences offer views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine nature preserve. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in Gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence and wood floors throughout, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The custom kitchens have Wolf and SubZero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island, all of which are standard features. Our kitchens have an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve. They are perfect vantage points to watch our spectacular sunsets, stated Wilson. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Dramatic views are available to every single resident, no matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop including the sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. The beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also slated for completion around the same timeframe as the first tower. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. It will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/ outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with Har-Tru tennis courts, plus pickleball courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. Due to bridge closings in the North Naples area, take US 41 to Wiggins Pass Road, then right on Vanderbilt Drive, two-tenths of a mile.

Phase II Ballard Model at Naples Square to offer an at the beach ambianceAs construction of 73 Phase II residences at Naples Square moves closer to being completed in first quarter of this year, excitement is growing in anticipation of the completion of three furnished Phase II models. The Phase II Ballard model will feature an interior by Robb & Stucky Internationals Susan J. Bleda, ASID and interior designer Rachelle Porco. Naples Square is being developed by The Ronto Group at 5th Avenue South and Goodlette-Frank Road in downtown Naples.

The plan features two bedrooms, two baths, a den, great room, and a counter-height island kitchen. The great room, master bedroom, and guest bedroom open to the balcony. An optional pocketing door is available to provide ensuite guest quarters. Twilight at the beach can be a magical time when the brilliance of the sunset is subdued and the quiet tones of silver, gray and periwinkle paint a romantic transition to the night. In the Ballard model, the designers have created that twilight ambiance by using clear materials like glass and Lucite, reflective surfaces of polished chrome and silver metal, and soft white background colors with accents of soft periwinkle blue, grayed lavender and silver.

The media wall will be fauxfinished with subtle silver striations designed to evoke the quiet water theme of the interior design. Facing the media wall, a soft white leather 85-inch sofa will be accented with textured periwinkle blue throw pillows.

The dining area will be centered on a wall boasting a vibrant 80-inch by 40-inch original abstract painting in tones of bright white, shining silver and hints of periwinkle blue. The contemporary 84-inch Parsons-style rectangular dining table will feature a gleaming white quartz top and stainless steel legs. Embossed white leather dining chairs with acrylic legs will surround the table. Pure white shaker style cabinetry with polished chrome hardware will be featured in the open kitchen and be complemented with an unusual sunset-toned backsplash done in pale lavender and smoky gray glass tiles. Countertops on both the perimeter and the island will be done in clean white quartz with speckled gray accents. Triangular chrome and glass pendants will hang above the island. Backless polished chrome counter stools topped with shimmery silver leather will pull up to the island. The study will be designed to function as a multipurpose space and will feature a custom built-in desk/shelf across one entire wall complete with white shaker style cabinetry underneath for work space storage. This wall will also function as the rooms media wall and have a wall-mounted television. A silver 79-inch sleeper sofa will be accented with periwinkle blue pillows and will sit on a textured white area rug. Quiet tones of silver and white will continue into the light grey carpeted master bedroom where a romantic white wood-framed king bed will feature upholstered panels of silver and white linen on the headboard and footboard. The bed will be dressed in pure white fabrics with custom periwinkle pillows. White lacquered nightstands with stainless steel legs and contemporary hardware will face a matching textured front console. The master bath flooring will transition back to the clean look of the Carrara marble-look porcelain. White shaker style cabinetry will be used on the double vanity and be accented with contemporary silver hardware. White quartz countertops and a geometric patterned backsplash in polished white stone and silvery glass will also appear as a design detail in the spa shower. The covered balcony will feature a leafy view of the lively urban landscape and two areas for entertaining and relaxing. A sleek white square dining table with brushed aluminum legs will seat four on matching white sling dining chairs. A modern classic white chaise lounge will be paired with a metallic garden stool for private sunset cocktails.
